OCEASOFT announces the launch of the second generation of its Atlas and Emerald Bluetooth-enabled temperature data loggers, designed to simplify everyday tasks in the shipping and logistics sectors.
These new products are accompanied by a new version of OCEASOFT’s mobile sensor management application, OCEAView, available for iOS and Android in English, French and Spanish. The new smartphone and tablet application geo-tags the new Atlas and Emerald data loggers in real-time, and sends collected data automatically to OCEASOFT’s secure Cloud platform. With this application, delivery truck drivers can now prove their proper handling of the cold chain directly for clients at the time of delivery. The application also includes a feature to monitor data loggers placed with transported products and in a vehicle’s refrigerated compartments using a smartphone’s Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
Atlas is compliant with the DO-160 standard for avionics hardware testing, and Emerald received NF EN 12830 certification from cold chain expert Cemafroid. OCEASOFT’s mobile and web applications were all developed to meet requirements of FDA 21 CFR Part 11 guidelines, as well as Good Distribution Practices (GDP) for medical products.
The latest-generation Atlas and Emerald products offer:
•Bluetooth connectivity has been optimized to handle a large number of data loggers simultaneously.
•Internal memory in both devices has been boosted to hold 16,000 readings, offering connectionless data logging for periods of several months, such as for maritime shipping.
•Battery life has been increased, now reaching one year for Atlas and Emerald.
•The temperature range for Atlas modules has been extended, now covering from –30° C to +70° C.
Support for Bluetooth connectivity gives Atlas and Emerald modules these advantages over traditional USB-based data loggers:
•Reading data through product packaging, thus reducing the risk of human error or false alarms caused by opening to retrieve the data logger.
•Simple operation with an ordinary smartphone.
•Ongoing information provided to drivers thanks to wireless communication.
•Automatic retrieval of data at the destination, or upon return, using the OCEABridge data collector/Cloud gateway.
•Fast and easy data logger programming, in just two seconds, with the OCEASOFT Loading Bench and reusable mission templates.
